A device used to dampen or soften the sound of certain instruments. Mutes are commonly used on most brass instruments and many bowed stringed instruments. The type of mutes used on brass instruments can also change the quality of the sound, so genres such as big band or jazz band can require a performer to have several different mutes for specific sounds.
